“Heart and Soul,” the title of one of their hit songs, also explains the enduring appeal of Huey Lewis & The News. For over thirty years they have been making and performing hits like: "Heart of Rock and Roll", "Power of Love", "Hip To Be Square", "Happy To Be Stuck With You" and more! Whether it is their singing about the daily grind in “Workin' For A Livin'” or lamenting a troubled relationship in “If This Is It”, this is a band that connects with people on a gut level. Completing the rock, rhythm and blues feel of the band's sound are founding members Johnny Colla (saxophone, guitar and vocals), Bill Gibson (drums, percussion and vocals), and Sean Hopper (keyboards and vocals) as well as Stef Burns (guitars and vocals) and John Pierce (bass). The extra bit of coolness you feel comes from their horn section, consisting of San Francisco Bay area luminaries: Marvin McFadden (trumpet), Rob Sudduth (tenor saxophone) and Johnnie Bamont (baritone saxophone).
